Using Schulte Fixed Knife Technology, Stubble & Crop residue is driven into stationary knives, mounted in strategic positions under the deck of the cutter by free swinging blades set moving at speeds of up to 4,800 meters per minute. Increasing the chopping & mulching action of a rotary cutter.
Mounted baffle distribution plates direct the mulched materials out of the cutter with an even spread.
The stationary fixed knives are protected by shear bolts which allow them to pivot when required. The free swinging blades are each protected individually by slip clutches.
Chopped stubbles aid direct drilling and strip tillage seeding, thanks to improved material flow through the drill and less opportunities for seed ‘hair pinning’, along with a shorter length of stubble.
Chopped & Mulched stubbles see quicker residue decomposition and weathering.
Fixed Knives can quickly be removed to allow the rotary cutter to be used on grassland and for pasture management.
Make sure to visit Schulte on stand M26 to find out more about their Fixed Knife Technology.
We also have over 140 exhibitors at the event displaying the latest science and technology across the trade stands, while CropTec’s well established seminars and hubs will feature the latest thinking on a range of key arable topics delivered by leading specialists.
